    Yes, that's fine. It's also possible to say,
    "He claims that museums have lost sight, to some extent, of their core role in society"
    and perhaps also
    "He claims that museums, to some extent, have lost sight of their core role in society"

    but I think your sentence is the best and clearest.

    EDIT: Crossed with Keith - I'm glad we agree!
